Join us this summer for the Halifax Summer Choral Conducting Symposium - July 22-26, 2014 in Halifax, Nova Scotia!

The Halifax Summer Choral Conducting Symposium is a 5-day intensive workshop offering group instruction in choral/vocal pedagogy, conducting technique, choral repertoire, and Dalcroze Eurhythmics; and individual instruction in conducting, voice, piano and organ.  Designed to support the practical work of all levels of choral conductors, we invite school/university educators, church musicians, studio teachers, and undergraduate/graduate music students to participate.

This summer, we welcome Dr. Hilary Apfelstadt, Director of Choral Activities at the University of Toronto, as our guest clinician. 

We also welcome Dr. Caron Daley (Choral Pedagogy, Dalcroze Eurhythmics), Dr. Susan Boddie (Vocal Pedagogy), Lynette Wahlstrom (Church Music, Piano), and Shawn Whynot (Church Music, Organ) to our teaching faculty.
